A Research on Updating of Anthropometric Measurements
By considering the dimensional measurements of the students who spend most of their time at school, the fact that their body and structural equipment haven’t been designed will affect their body and psychological improvements negatively. Anthropometric measurements are necessary for education equipment and designs of education-structural equipment of the children at the age of school. It is emphasized that anthropometric measurements of the people living in different climate and altitude conditions in literature will be different. It is mentioned that anthropometric data available for a certain region will be able to change in terms of changing socio-economical conditions and therefore, updating of anthropometric data is necessary in certain in period of times. For the reason, in 1999 anthropometric data obtained from the children, between the age of seven and fifteen, who were in sitting and standing position, were measured to plan a longitudinal study in 2007. In the result of comparison which was made, as reported in literature, it is clear that anthropometric data will be able to be updated in certain period of times.
